New Arrivals In A Classical Z/Yen Style

The dawning of a new decade has seen several new arrivals at Z/Yen.

From the beginning of 2020, the Employee Share Ownership Centre has transferred to Z/Yen. Founder and doyen of Employee Share Ownership Plans (ESOPs), Malcolm Hurlston, continues to chair the Centre while Fred Hackworth, with ongoing nominative determinism, will continue to add value by editing newspad and planning the annual symposium.

As a result, the Z/Yen team also welcomes Juliet Wigzell, who is now working for Z/Yen while continuing to look after ESOP Centre members.

Speaking of the annual ESOP Centre British Isles Symposium, this sentence provides a link to information about that event, which takes place on 26 March at Linklaters in London - hurry now to snap up the few remaining places if you are interested - either through the link or by e-mailing

But Z/Yen is also delighted to announce another new arrival of a different kind. Z/Yen stalwart Ben Morris, together with his Z/Yen alum wife Alexandra, have produced a bouncing baby boy, Sokratis. Whether the name is a nod to Brazilian football or Greek philosophy (or both) has not yet been disclosed, although the nipper has, apparently, already been photographed wearing toddler's Tottenham Hotspurs kit.

Here at Now & Z/Yen we prefer to think of this as all relating to Greek classical homonyms; ESOP and Sokratis. Fabulist case studies and philosophical dialogues is so very Z/Yen.

Congratulations and very best wishes to all of our new arrivals.
